Be Thankful You’re Free To Dab, Unlike This Saudi Musician Who Was Jailed For It

One minute you’re up on stage dropping bars on people’s faces and bringing the house down when you hit the dab to make the crowd absolutely erupt, then the next you’re in the clink for that dab. Messed up.

From StepFeed:

A young Saudi singer was arrested in Taif, Saudi Arabia on Tuesday after he dabbed during a musical contest he was participating in over the weekend, Okaz newspaper reported.

In a now viral video, TV host, actor, and aspiring artist, Abdallah Al Shaharani, is seen pulling off the dance move, which is officially prohibited by the country’s anti-drug authority as many consider it a reference to weed and other narcotics.

And here’s the video. Nice form.

I’ve never been prouder to be an American citizen than I am in this very moment. The list of reasons why America is the best place to live is long and distinguished — democracy, capitalism, chicken fried steak, that juggling dodgeball game that ESPN 8 “The Ocho” aired, we get to choose our spouses and all that shit — but freedom to dab our faces off whenever and wherever we want tops the list for me.

What a country. What a time to be alive in America. We may on the brink of a nuclear war with a total psychopath with a stupid haircut, but we’re free to dab our ways to the grave, and that’s a great feeling.
